Personal Synopsis

This episode does show an improvement with the sword fighting and is actually a pleasant side adventure for Sir Lancelot. The love between the children of the two masters is a standard story of romance being held back by their archaic parents. Diplomacy is a part of the job of knight and Sir Lancelot brings his skills to this episode.
